Join the NJDOT Bureau of Research on June 10th for a Lunchtime Tech Talk! Webinar on Evaluation of Precast Concrete Pavement Systems: Identify Existing Precast Concrete Pavement Systems and State Specifications
Faculty and research staff members from the Rowan University CREATEs program, Dr. Yusuf Mehta and Dr. Daniel Offenbacker, will discuss the results of a research study performed for NJDOT.
Rigid pavements play an important role in highway infrastructure, primarily in regions with high traffic density such as New Jersey. NJDOT is continuously exploring innovative pavement rehabilitation strategies, such as Precast Concrete Pavement (PCP), that allow for faster and more durable rehabilitation of rigid pavements. NJDOT initiated a research study with Rowan University CREATEs to identify, evaluate, and compare precast pavement systems, specifications, and practices currently in use. The study included an extensive literature review and surveys with Subject Matter Experts from various state DOTs that have experience with precast pavement rehabilitations.
The presenters will discuss the types of precast pavement systems, past construction experiences, and overall recommendations for precast pavements. Specifically, they will discuss previous studies and experiences using precast pavements, different quality control specifications, and recommendations for future implementation in NJ. They will also speak on the development of an overall approval process for considering the use of newly-developed precast pavements in NJ.
